good book, has ruined a lot of good places, though

PW knows her stuff. I bought this after going to PAris several dozen times and found that most of what I liked she had recomended, as well as many many places that I didn't know.The only problem was that every where I went, even to places I had never seen a tourist in, were now full of tourists with her book on the table, ordering the exact meal she had recomended.a truly powerful pen

The Food Lover's Guide to France

I found this book in Paris, translated into French, and so was very surprised after a few weeks of using it to finally notice that it was not written by a native Parisian. Ms. Wells makes very detailed comments about each restaurant's menu, service, as well as ambiance and history. The write-ups of the restaurants and other food places are interspersed with brief articles on French lifestyle, cheeses, wines, customs, and other foodie points of interest that I wouldn't have thought to look up but which I found extremely interesting. I had bought it simply as an aid to finding decent food but as it turns out, The Food Lover's Guide is also a wonderful mini-guide through French life and history.
